Road to Love

The road to love is very slippery

If you are not careful

You can slip-slide away

Attraction is often mistaken for it

Making a misery of life.

Infatuation is like an uninvited guest

Where your feelings may not be reciprocated

So, tread on this road carefully, my friend

If you have a fragile heart

Better you not venture on it.

But if you have a heart that is robust

Fearlessly embark on this road

A fall here, a fall there and a stumble

Will make life truly a worthwhile ride.

    1. I think from tomorrow onwards I will put a disclaimer in my posts, in response to prompts; if the poem is any good, I’ll take the credit, if it is not, I’ll blame the prompts! πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much. ☺️

      1. Haha, great idea. I do that with my cooking: if you love it, then I made it; if you don’t then someone else did πŸ™‚ You are kindly welcome πŸ™‚

      2. Oh, I could never fit into your shoes literally and figuratively πŸ™‚ So, let’s do this side by side on that same path through life, just on different continents πŸ™‚

      1. Never an expert but I have seen many a hearts break. Some bounce back, some don’t.
        But this was a lighthearted take keeping in mind the prompts. ☺️
        Whereas what you have written seems to be coming from an expert, in these days of social media. πŸ˜€

      2. let me take a bow, in the context of social media.. instead of being humble like you. bouncy hearts are definitely great assets, especially if you planning the road trip.
